Knights of the Lunch Table #1

The Dodgeball Chronicles


Knights of the Lunch Table




New student Artie King is a nice, comics-loving kid who just wants to ease into life at Camelot Middle School without attracting too much attention. But by second period, Artie already has enemies. He tripped Camelot's mean principal by mistake. An older kid isn't happy about the lunch he stole from Artie. (Well, Artie tried to warn him that sandwich was made by his pesky sister . . . out of boogers and soap!) And Artie just can't seem to stay out of the way of big Mo and The Horde, the bunch of brawny bullies who rule the school.
To top it off, Artie has been assigned a funky old locker that no one has ever been able to open. Artie can do it, though, and finds the locker mysteriously full of all kinds useful stuff. He's also made a few pals in the lunchroom, Percy and Wayne, and the science teacher, Mr. Merlyn, who seems weird but nice.
When a humiliated Mo fails to open Artie's locker, he challenges him and his pals to a do-or-die dodgeball game. The Horde vs. The Knights of the Lunch Table. Losers get creamed.

graphic novel...."

"...Cammuso has created a big, bright, funny, page-turning first
volume of stories very loosely based on the King Arthur stories and laced
with other literary references. Young readers will identify with the
characters and ask for more..."




"I love anything Frank Cammuso writes - - especially if it involves evil queens (the principal), and terrible hordes destroying villages (just a model for social studies), and mighty challenges (DEATH BY DODGEBALL!) Artie King and his gang are fun to hang with."

- Jeff Smith creator of "Bone"
